Replacing Blown Out Fireplace
Last winter (I know - it's been awhile) our glass fireplace doors exploded into the family room. Luckily no one was hurt, but now I need to replace the unit. I am a fireplace replacement newbie (aka, I know nothing about requirements or terms), so I hope you'll bear with me.
The fireplace itself is ugly - from the late 80s, contemporary and really beat up. It is a corner, zero clearance fireplace.
I was hoping to upgrade to a propane fueled fireplace - but I have no idea even what to look for...or if I can do that. Do I need a gas fireplace insert, or a gas fireplace or do I need to get a wood fireplace?
Anyone that has any information to help me get started would be greatly appreciated!
